TruMac® Series

Carbon/Nitrogen/Protein/Sulfur in Macro Organic Samples

Easily handle characteristically heterogeneous, difficult to prepare, or low-level samples with the TruMac carbon/nitrogen/sulfur determinator. Macro sample sizes (up to 3 grams for nitrogen; up to 1.5 grams for carbon/nitrogen; up to 0.3 grams for carbon/nitrogen/sulfur) are quickly analyzed with a low cost-per-analysis.

A unique high temperature ceramic horizontal furnace, combined with LECO's carbon/nitrogen/sulfur determinator design, make the TruMac ideal for a variety of applications including soils, feeds, meats, starches, and slurries.

Features

Maximize Throughput for Macro Samples While Keeping Cost-Per-Analysis Low

  • Rapid analysis of 5.0 minutes with extended reagent lifetimes ensure a low cost-per-analysis and increased instrument uptime for maximum throughput regardless of sample matrix or mass
  • Nitrogen/protein models feature a 2000 sample reduction reagent lifetime
  • Unique combustion gas handling and aliquot dosing system eliminating the need for chromatographic separation, trap and purge techniques, and other costly whole gas analyses
  • Autoloader allows for unattended analysis of 50 samples, full automation of analysis cycle simplifying workflow and increasing productivity

Improved Design and Accessibility for Maintenance

  • Eliminate the need for chemical anhydrone in nitrogen and carbon/nitrogen configurations utilize a thermoelectric cooler to remove moisture from combustion gas
  • Simplified preventive maintenance routine with Quick-release ballast assembly and exterior mounted pinch-valve assembly
  • Complies with AOAC , AACC, AOCS, ISO , and ASBC methods of analysis

Highlights

UNIQUE CERAMIC HORIZONTAL FURNACE

  • Pure oxygen environment with lance directing oxygen directly onto the sample ensures the complete oxidation of macro samples with maximum temperatures up to 1450oC
  • Robust design utilizes six heating elements for increased reliability and efficiency
  • Purge chamber eliminates atmosphere entrainment in samples
